Default 15+ WRX JDM FogLight Bezels

Hey guys,

This is just a heads up for those of you who don't want to spend all that money on the SubiSpeed switchback Bezels. These are not gloss black unfortunately but half price is the selling point for me. Anyways I just got around to installing my eBay fog bezels. These are not OEM at all BUT they are amazing so far. I paid $95 for them on eBay ( https://www.ebay.com/itm/222419906446 ) install was really easy and the fitment was actually perfect. Didn't have to force the bezel in it just snapped in on all the places it needed too. Definitely recommend this product. I have also not yet wired the switchback feature because I don't have the t-taps on me. Install took me maybe 20 minutes.

If you don't mine not having the gloss black then I'd say save money and get these. They are pretty good quality for what you pay for.

I don't think they will. I just looked at some pictures online and the fog Bezels look different. They may come out for the car eventually but I don't think they have them yet for your car.

Thanks. Any idea what goes on in that little black box that they tell to use for the turn signal capability? As far as I can tell the Subispeed ones just use a T harness to get the signal to the bezels.

I bought this but haven't installed yet. Two questions:


1) did you use a subispeed harness or did you add your own add-afuse? I'm planning on adding a fuse to both high and low, similar to the subispeed harness, by splicing/soldering to the red wire.

2) what do you tap the yellow wire into? The blue wire from turn signals?

I do have the drl harness from subispeed so I tapped the power into that. The blinkers I didn't hook up yet because I left my t taps at home but when I do set that up I am going to use the t taps and connect that to the yellow wire that comes out of the morimoto c lights that I have installed. If you don't have the c light mod then I unfortunately don't know where to tap it into. I'd have to check where the power goes when I turn the blinker on

Yeah that's what I'm going to do. T tap harness the yellow wires from the black box to the yellow wire coming out from my morimoto c lights.

Thanks. Last question I swear, did you have to remove the bumper?

Ask as many as you want man that's why I posted it no worries! But I did not remove the bumper. The install was simple and took maybe all of 20-30 minutes. There's enough cable in this kit to route it on top of the bumper by like where SubiSpeed tells you to run their drl harness

This is very interesting... I have wanted to delete the turn signals from their current position ( imo, they look terrible there ) and have been looking at a switchback option but knew the small bulbs on the headlight corners were not bright enough for the job.

How do these look at night, in terms of brightness?

Im also very interested in seeing how these hold up over time. Did you notice any gaps around where the foglight sits?

Also, what Clights are those, and does the hue of the lights match?

Any way to wire these so they only come on with drl and turn off when low or high beams come on? Already have c lights as drl.

I think you should be able to just tap in to the C-lights as DRL harness.

Yes, as they're supposed to from factory. The C-lights as DRL harness should only be providing power when the headlights are off.

I will be installing Fogs / DD C-lights / JDM Bezels soon. From all the videos, this is how I will wire things up (I do not have the subi-speed harness as i do not see the need for them). I also have the DD Harness to disable the headlight

DD C-Light Wiring:
  • DD White -> Red OEM Clight
  • DD Black -> Black OEM Clight
  • DD Yellow -> Blue OEM Turn Signal
  • DD Red -> Red DD Harness
  • DD Harness -> High Beam OEM Harness

OEM Fog Lights:
  • Plenty of Videos, Won't go into the wiring unless someone is confused

JDM Style SwitchbackBezel:
  • Bezel Yellow Wires (2, one for each side) -> Blue OEM Turn Signal
  • Bezel Black -> OEM Battery Ground
  • Bezel Red -> Splice to 2 Add-AFuse, and plug into OEM Low/High Beam FUSE Box
    OR
  • Bezel Red -> T-Tap Red OEM Clight
    OR
  • Bezel Red -> T-Tap DD Yellow
    OR
  • Bezel Red -> Plug into DRL location in Fuse box without Add-A-Fuse

I think I will go with the first one.

Thoughts?

I want these but I don't have fogs... base WRX. anyone know how hard it is to wire the switch up to the dash for those? I feel confident tapping into my c-light harness and turn signal for the led.

These wouldn't be wired to the dash at all. They are T-Tapped to run as DRL's and when low beams are on.

Do you mean wire the fog switch to the dash? its super easy.

exactly - the fog light switch to the dash since I don't currently have fogs. I've had my finger on the buy now button a few times for these

I can get a a night picture soon. There are gaps only because my foglights were done aftermarket by me and even with stock Bezels there was a gap so Idk about fogs from the factory.

I have Morimoto C Lights and the hue is slightly different. Morimoto is more blue and the bezels are pure white. They would probably match better with diode dynamics

So I am assuming, if you don't get the Subiespeed DRL harness, these lights will only work with the low beams on? Correct me if I am wrong here.

I want these to be on, along with my DRL/high beams. I intend on not making my C lights (OEM) turn on during the day.

You can splice the wire into a 12v ACC fuse and it will run every-time you turn your key.
